End of Term Treats

It's the end of term again and I couldn't be happier to be facing 9 days off! I really dislike my workplace at the moment, dramatic aren't I, and to cheer myself up after a terrible few weeks of no breaks whatsoever and mean comments from co-workers, I decided to treat myself to a little summin' summin' with some of the pennies I'd saved from last months pay packet.

May I...

May wish list

May wish list by casey-byrne featuring a green handbag

I haven't posted in such a long time. I'm sure all bloggers can sympathise with life getting royally in the way of posting and for me it's been work (and a massive job hunt) that's kept me from doing what I like best. That being said, knowing that I wouldn't have much time to put posts together this month, I updated my site instead with a cute (and much more professional looking) theme and I'm much happier with how this page looks now; I hope you like it as much as I do.
I've also linked my second blog, Best Place I've Never Been, through my new and improved top bar #shamelessplug. Please, please, please check the page out; it's a travel wishlist blog that I've been putting quite a lot into just lately so I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing articles for it, hopefully it'll provide you with some travel/adventure inspiration.

Back to CaseyB, I've finally got round to doing a wishlist after completely missing out April and this addition is quite heavily inspired by my upcoming trip to Venice. Okay, I'll admit, it's not actually booked yet, but it's inevitable and I couldn't be more excited! The Topshop bag is ideal for hand luggage and so cute that I actually swooned aloud when I saw it in store. I'm still after a pair of cleated Chelsea boots but would ideally like a black pair with white soles which seem to be non-existent now that I have the money for them (typical) but I'm really loving the peep-toe sling back versions that are storming the blogging network; everytime I see a pair on Instagram my heart aches a little in longing. The majority of the Topshop items are in my online basket waiting to be purchased and once Venice is booked (eeee!) I'll be snapping them up to take away with me. I'll show you everything I buy as soon as it arrives and will hopefully have a Venice adventure to share with you come July.
It's been such a long time, but I'm back and it feels good!


Nailed It

Ah Rimmel. I never used to be a huge fan of this brand but after becoming addicted to a couple of their mascara's (Lash Accelerator and Scandaleyes) I decided to give their nail polishes a second chance. This nicely coincided with the release of the Rita Ora Colour Rush line which feature some pastel shades that I really couldn't take my eye off, as well some awesome lip crayons but that's a whole other post waiting to happen. Choosing shades was a lengthy process but I finally settled on 'Lose Your Lingerie' and 'White Hot Love', two really cute pastel shades, one pink and white.
